    I got a few Easton Microlite Super Nock to try a while back and liked them well enough that changed nocks on my Beman ICSH arrows to them.
    Approx 5grs lighter than standard super nock I had been using, helps front balance (slightly) and to me seem to fit slightly better......they are quite a bit shorter than the standard super nock.

    The set of PSE Carbon Force X-Weave arrows I have came with Beiter nocks. I had no problem with them, but did change the 3 arrows I have left to the Microlite.

    Lighted nocks are a problem for me. I like the idea, but don't like the extra tail weight, and being "electronic" they're illegal during archery season in Idaho.


    Haven't done this in several years now, but I used to place my conventional nocked aluminum arrows on the string and gently put forward until it popped off........if it pulled the string more, or less, than 1/8", I would dip nock end in hot water to soften slightly, then pinch or spread gap until I got them all the same.

If you do your job the arrow will be right where you were aiming when the bow went off. You just have to aim and have confidence in your ability.

    It had nothing to do with seeing my arrow flight, but more to "locate" it in the grass, water or where ever I shot it. Of course, if I still can't find it, it's just more money lost.
